-Load XML file into HIVE

I would like to load an XML data file into HIVE. I created a table with
just one column:
create table xmltable (xmldata String )
STORED AS TEXTFILE;
and then loaded the xml file into that table
LOAD DATA LOCAL INPATH '/test.xml'
OVERWRITE INTO TABLE xmltable;
I thought I can use the XPATH to extract individual elements. But I am not
1) How to specify the root node as a record terminator on CREATE TABLE
statement (it's using '\n' by default)
2) Change the current context / node for the XPATH
Can some one provide guidance and may be point to some good examples?
